Grilled chicken salad

Grilling is one of those things that’s so great because it can make for a really quick meal. I wanted a recipe that works for one of those nights when you just don’t have a lot of time to make dinner, but still want to fire up the grill. So today we’re going to put…

Burger Time!

Who doesn’t love a good burger? Admittedly, I’m not as big on burgers as most people, but I do enjoy one from time to time. I had written this recipe with the intention of posting it last Wednesday, but I’ve been busy with some changes that kept me away for a week. (Don’t worry, everything is fine). So…

Summer Solstice Salmon

Happy first day of summer! Today is the longest day of the year, so get out and enjoy the sunlight! Fire up the grill, crack open a cold one, and enjoy some time with loved ones. One of my favorite things to eat during the summer is salmon. Whether baked, grilled, smoked…I just love it….

Life is Gouda chicken sandwich

A while ago, my best friend asked me what’s my favorite cheese. It took me a moment, but I answered Gouda. I absolutely love Gouda cheese. Especially smoked Gouda. It is just my favorite. It melts beautifully in cheese sauces, overtop pasta, and in a grilled cheese sandwich. BUT it also is hearty enough that it…

The Muenster Mash Burger

I love puns. I also love a good burger. This particular recipe is great for those of you who like things a little spicier. I like to occasionally make something a bit spicier for Alex because he really likes spicy food, and burgers are a great vehicle for a lot of different spices.  Also, burgers are…

Welcome to the first day of the summer grilling series! Today, everything but dessert is going to be done on the grill. I’m so excited for this summer series; I will be bringing you a new recipe every week! Anyone who knows me knows that I do not like the heat. Summer is actually my…

Memorial Day Cookout

Memorial Day has become a day about cookouts, yard games, drinking, and a four day weekend. However, it is meant to be a day to remember the brave men and women who lost their lives while fighting for our freedoms here in the U.S. Like many holidays, we celebrate it with food and fellowship, but it…

I’m Back!

Hello again! I took a bit of a hiatus to work on some new recipes for the grilling series! I’m working on a whole grilling spread for Memorial Day, and I’m very excited to post it! It will be up on Friday and will include all the grilling favorites, and a few special surprises! I’m…

One Pot Mac ‘n Cheese with Chicken

A while ago, I shared a Food Network video on my Facebook page of a one pot mac ‘n cheese recipe. Being a mac ‘n cheese expert, I had to try it for myself and find ways to tweak it and make it my own. This recipe is a great base to expand upon, or keep…

One Pan Breakfast Skillet

When I was little, my mom would make pancakes every Saturday morning. I believe this is a big reason for breakfast being my favorite meal. I absolutely love breakfast food, and can get behind breakfast for dinner almost any night of the week. I am lucky enough to married to a man who loves breakfast…

One Pan Chicken “Taco” Bake

I’m sure the quotations around taco raised some eyebrows. They’re there because in no way is this a traditional or even Tex-Mex taco. I grew up and live in the Midwest, I cook a lot of Midwest food, these are Midwest tacos. What is great about this recipe is how simple the base is; you can…

One Pot Chicken and Succotash

You know what I love about things like succotash? It’s easy, colorful, delicious, and there’s so many things you can add to it. This is a great meal for summer. You don’t have to make it in one pot, it’s also fantastic with grilled chicken. Let’s get cooking! You Will Need: Large dutch oven Frozen…
